Shutterbugs gathering around hotspots to photograph
celebrities is commonplace. However, things spiralled out of control last night
when Shilpa Shetty was exiting Bastian in Bandra with husband Raj Kundra in
Bastian In Bandra
It so happened that the paparazzi began clicking the happy couple the moment they got out of the restaurant. The ever graceful Shilpa posed with Raj and things were going smoothly. However, the moment the actress sat inside the car, 2 of the eatery’s bouncers beat two media photographers up. So much so that they began bleeding and their cameras were left broken.
We have the video of the incident. Take a look:
Is this behaviour pardonable?
Bastian’s owner alerted the police which arrived at the spot an hour later. Shockingly, when the photographers dialled 100, the call went unanswered.

The police arrested the bouncers and took them to the Khar Police Station. An FIR has been registered against them.
A statement issued by Bastian read, "We're saddened and shocked by the incident that took place outside Bastian last night. We have celebrities and well known guests visiting us frequently, and every experience has so far been smooth. During last night's incident, the people involved were personnel of Tough Security who are hired for Bastian via external vendors - as is the practice, the security agency assigns their personnel to us and other establishments based on who is available that day. All the Bastian staff, as well as the management, was inside in the restaurant on the second floor at the time of the incident - we were made aware of the same a while after it began. This was a highly unfortunate situation that escalated beyond anything we could have imagined. As soon as the Bastian team found out, we took remedial measures to get things under control. We are changing security agencies today as we do not want to take the risk of this happening again, as well as personally apologising to the media involved. We are also collecting all information so that we are able to offer to take care of any and all medical bills that may have resulted due to this incident."
